Commey admitted his happiness after completing the deal and believes Chelsea will be a springboard for him to land a foreign contract in the future.

"I'm happy to have finally joined Berekum Chelsea and I think things will be awesome here," Commey said.

"There were several options but I came here because I believe I can have several deals outside at Chelsea in the future since they have the men to help young prospects like me. I wish and hope things will go as planned," he added.
